Walking back from the Jazz at Shedd Aquarium we chanced upon the statue. It was lit up and looked impressive against the night sky. While not a destination in itself it is easy to find and worth the detour.

Buckingham fountain is right around the corner and it's worth swinging by this statue on your way there. It looks over a beautiful section of the park with flowers and landscaping.

There is so much history in Chicago and some is shown through fountains, statues and towers and they're all appreciated. They are well placed and beautiful to visit, it's like outdoor museum.

The statue is on a raised hill with a flight of manageable stone stairs leading to it, with all round views, from the top? Seen from distance it gives scale to the nearby property developments etc, built since the statue, park itself was built?
